Burmese Semolina Cake (Shwegyi Sanwei Makin) is rich, moist, subtly sweet. A mouthwatering South-East Asian dessert with hints of coconut.
It’s been a while now since our wanders through Burma/Myanmar.
We had our first taste of Burmese culture and cuisine in Yangon, the country’s former capital, staying in a tiny windowless guesthouse in the heart of the city’s Chinatown district.
At the time, it all seemed like an overwhelming hubbub of new experiences, sights, sounds, and smells.
With nights getting colder, it’s time to pull out the chilli and go curry-crazy – Asian style. Move aside India – it’s time to try the fiery delights of Japan, Laos, Myanmar and beyond. These 13 Asian curries are guaranteed to rev up your spice addiction!
Despite today’s unreasonable 30 degree celcius day (what is going ON?), we’re starting to head into the colder months over here in Adelaide. Which means, it’s just about time to get stuck into some incredibly delicious and warming Asian curries. Rather than keep all these gorgeous flavours, colours and ingredients to ourselves we decided to give you some inspo and share a few of our favourites from around the globe.
So without further ado, let us present:
For the freshest, tastiest guacamole you can’t get better than homemade. Featuring lime, fish sauce and chilli for an unbeatable flavour hit, this Spicy Asian Inspired Guacamole Dip is set to spice up your life in the best way possible.
So over the last few weekends our housemate has taken us down to some nearby fresh produce markets (for you Adelaidians, we’re talking about the Torrens Island Markets. 😉 )
We couldn’t believe the fresh produce available, from farm fresh veggies to free range eggs, organic spices, fresh baked breads and everything in between.
And, best bit, it’s literally a five minute drive from home.
How in the world did we not realise how good this is? Everything is so much cheaper and fresher than what’s been available in the supermarkets lately.
This Lemongrass Chicken Curry is the masterpiece of our finished Burmese Banquet. It’s the one your fork will wander back to again and again as you sample all the amazing Burmese dishes we’ve learned this week.
Wow, how quickly time flies! The weekend has arrived and it’s time for our final Burmese Food Week recipe – Lemongrass Chicken Curry.
This Burmese Mushroom and Watercress Stir Fry has all the salty and sweet goodness you could ask for in a quick, healthy stir fry that’s ready in minutes. Soft in spicy and super satisfying, this is a dish to suit all tastes.
IT’S STIR-FRYDAY! Time for Burmese Food Week number four – Mushroom and Watercress Stir Fry.
You literally have no idea how long I’ve been waiting to write that. Haha.
No matter what day it is we love a good stir fry, and this Mushroom and Watercress Stir Fry gives us the warm and happy feels.
